A slate of 14 original pieces of art have been donated for this year’s Art for the Heart charity auction.

Variety, The Children’s Charity of Manitoba is the beneficiary of the event, taking place during the month of September through an online auction.

Mayberry Fine Art is a longstanding partner of Variety, joining Consignor.ca this year to present the art works online.

Variety hopes the auction churns up $50,000 to support their programming, which helps young people with disabilities and those who face developmental barriers to achieve their life potential.

Thirteen Mayberry gallery artists have provided their work for the auction.

Pieces can be viewed online and bidding will begin September 1 at 9 a.m. CT. The last chance to place a bid will be 4 p.m. CT on September 30.

To get your bid ready, visit Consignor.ca or make a donation directly to Variety.
